Four police officers who braved a fire in an attempt to rescue a three-year-old girl from a blazing house this morning have been taken to hospital along with the child who was eventually plucked to safety by firefighters.

The girl and four officers have gone to Antrim Area Hospital for treatment for the effects of breathing smoke.

The alarm was raised shortly after 9.30am when a fire started at Brookfield Gardens in Ahoghill.

A PSNI spokesman revealed that the police officers were beaten back by flames.

On the arrival of the fire brigade, firefighters managed to rescue the little girl.
